+ Watch NXPI
on My Watchlist
Near field communication technology is only in its infancy and I believe it's uses will grow exponentially.
we can finally throw away all the plastic, keep the cash in the safe and depend on NFC to lead the future in transactions...
NFC technology is just beginning to be a major player in global communications. NXPI is a the forefront of an emerging industry that will only grow as people learn how to use the technology.
With 90% market share in NFC, this chipset is sure to be in many of the new phones that are going to one day be the much hyped but haven't arrived "Cell Phone Wallets, which are delayed due to their lack of formal security in the air and phishing problems. The technology will eventually figure itself out and NXP V Semiconductors will be very profitable.
NXPI's NFC technology will be heavily utilized over the next few years in phones featuring mobile payments. Rumors point to Apple adding NFC technology, and NXPI leads the industry.
growth industry, MF pick, leader
I have learned that the most efficient process always wins out (eventually). Unless there is some requirement for a cell phone hand warmer.(joke) NXPI was first licensed with Arm technology in the US, more recently BRDM has picked up a licence.
Mobile growth will drive the stock higher
NFC probably the way of the future
Consumers are always looking for a product with the new technology edge. The technology that NXPI brings will spread through out the Smartphone world and beyond. We already use this technology at gas pumps and other things that are credit card related. Just stand by and watch as the world engulfs this cutting edge technoloy into their everyday lives.
Nxpi continues to be a diversified company with many areas of electronic expertise and product specialization which have each supported the companies mission. NFC is a small aspect of the company and along with its company patent chest presents a solid growing gem. I am long on this powerhouse and technology game changing company.
Commoditization of NFC chips. Entry of Broadcom, Qualcomm, Texas Instruments, and others.
Great research in Dutch silicon-valley. Keeps turning out novelties, applicable in a growing market of IT-products
good mobile hardware play
Near Field Communication (NFC) is a wireless connectivity technology that enables convenient short-range communication between electronic devices. Applications include mobile payments, home control, and easy file transfer. On September 21st 2012, Apple is expected to announce the iPhone 5, which will include NFC support. On October 26th 2012, the first Windows 8 phones will ship, also supporting NFC. Since Android already supports NFC, by the end of the year every major mobile platform will support this technology. NXP Semiconductors has emerged as a leader in this area which is set to skyrocket in the next 5 years. Its major competition is a company known as Inside Secure.Both Inside Secure and NXP have NFC APIs, and they are both vying to become the industry standard. Inside Secure's big customer has been RIM, who have bought over 20 million chips from them. Do you really want to invest in the future of RIM, a company in a death spiral?As for NXP, their revenue breakdown certainly bodes well as almost 40% of their 4.2 billion comes from China, the world's largest mobile market. They invest $550 million in R&D per year, and their 10 largest direct customers are Apple, Bosch, Continental, Delphi, Giesecke/Devrient, Harman/Becker, Huawei, Nokia, Samsung and ZTE. This is a great play for the future, especially in emerging markets.
Technology in this industry is going to explode. I'm not sure quite how yet, but just a few years ago I never thought I'd be surfing the internet from my cell phone.
Solid Q2 2012 results. Seeing solid growth in Identification segment, which includes fast-growing mobile NFC applications. Softness in Europe is biting revenue and margins in the short-term, but new NFC products, strength in China and Asia-Pacific markets, and growing adoption across mobile OEMs should keep growth flowing.
